Hello. I have a question. What is the Classic .NET AppPool folder that isfound in the Users folder in Windows 7? It was just created earlier today by looking at Properties, many days after I installed Windows 7 -- so I assume it wasn't there right after I finished installing Windows 7 I have made many modifications to my WIndows 7 lately, so I may of somehow created it without knowing that I did. So someone could tell me how I created it?

What does this folder do? It has inside it much of the same folders and files found inside other user type files, like my own user name file.

Do I need this folder? Can I eliminate it? Is there a way for me to get rid of it in the same manner on however I created it?    

Please reply. Tell me about it. Do I need it and how does it work? Thank you!

IIS 7 has a feature that allows you to run web applications using a 'Classic' application pool that is compatible with older web applications built on IIS 6.x and older.

That mode used a special user guest account that as you have noticed when used will create an entry in your 'Users' folder.

If you don't want to see the folder then don't use the 'Classic .NET AppPool' for any web sites on your system and you can delete it.
